Asus Transformer Prime will be released in Australia next week, Android Ice Cream Sandwich included
Asus is getting ready to launch its Transformer Prime in Australia, where the tablet will be reportedly available for purchase starting next week.
According to PC & Tech Authority, January 18 is the day when Australian customers will be able to buy the Transformer Prime via “normal retail channels”. The 32GB version of the tablet will cost $799, while the 64GB one should be $899. Both prices include a docking station keyboard – and it looks like you won’t be able to get the Transformer Prime without one of those for the beginning.
Certainly, the Transformer Prime prices for the Australian market are high, but at least the tablet will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from day one there.
Earlier this week, at CES 2012, Asus has unveiled an upgraded Transformer Prime (TF700T), which should be out starting April, coming with a 1920 x 1200 pixels display (the original model only has a 1280 x 800 pixels screen).
